Weekly Challenge #51: Valentine’s Day Cards Challenge!

It's time for the weekly challenge on the Cricut circle blog.

This challenge was to make a Valentines day card. I wanted to make something for my daughter for Valentines day. I got my inpiration from none other than her PJ'S. Yes that is correct. Since she is only 3 she still wears the cute snuggly footed PJ'S. I thought wow that will make a fun little card for her.  Similar to these:
My inpiration for the card

The Challenge: Create a Valentine’s Day Card. Include sequins or gems and ribbon.
Rules and Guidelines: Circle Blog Challenges are open to Cricut Circle Members only. Your project must be newly created for this challenge and include atleast 2 Cricut Image Cuts. You must submit a project to be entered into the Challenge Prize Drawing. One entry per person, please.

I cut the cute little elephant (I know an Oxymoron) at 3.5 " from Create a Critter. The paper is from Recollections line - called Butterfly Wings.
The base paper is just from scraps - it's orange and pink but really hard to see it.
I added a few little gems (since I'm not mailing this I added alot). My daughter is loving glitter and gems now. I added a cute little ribbon from Michaels house brand and made a cute little bow on the tail.

I think she will love this as she seems to really love thos PJ's.

Thanks for stopping and
Happy Scrappin'
